    IOC control their show so strictly that we are finding info quite different from how we usually obtain our Badminton results, live scores, live streaming, etc., etc., ...

    Anyway, here are some links:

    For Schedule of Matches;
    http://www.london2012.com/badminton/schedule-and-results/index.html
    and/or
    http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/matches.aspx?id=029C3CC4-48A0-47DB-901F-6CE32DFB717A&d=20120729

    For Time in London;

    For our BC PAW Game;
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php/294-Olympics-LONDON-2012

    For Live Streaming;
    Perhaps BCers from different countries can post the links that are working for their regions. Different countries sometimes cannot use the same links. Here is what IOC informed us (how to watch live);

    and/or

    Interesting Matches

    Morning session interesting matches:

    NTM vs Kasyap - Kasyap is now very fit and fast to trouble NTM
    TQ/ZYL vs Juhl/Pedersen - Danes fight for survival
    Sudket/Saralee vs CPS/GLY - mathematically Malaysian pair can still advance if they beat the Thais and the Chinese break Harry Potter's wand, but naaaah, not likely :p
    Boe/Mogensen vs CB/GZD - Chinese will try to win and avoid Big Brothers


    Afternoon session interesting matches:

    Rajiv Ouseph vs Kevin Cordon - hmm, is the crowd sufficient to lift Ouseph
    Fujii/Kakiiwa vs CWH/CYC - big ask for TPE to win and salvage their campaign
    Sato vs Egelstaff - the tall Scot might just nick it here, and do a one up on Imogen Bankier

    Evening Session:

    Jorgensen vs Derek Wong - may not be as straightforward as we think
    Shinta/Yao Lei vs Gutta/Ponnappa - as in Malaysia XD's case for Singapore WD pair. Commonwealth Champs start as favourites based on yesterday's form .....
    HJE/KMJ vs Polii/Jauhari - battle to top the group and avoid the mighty YY/WXL
    Towi/Lily vs Laybourn/Juhl - two in-form pairs play to avoid World Champions
    Fischer/Pedersen vs Ikeda/Shiota - Could cute Shiota do the impossible? Definitely not on my PAW list .....
    XC/MJ vs CHL/CWH - time for Harry to summon all his powers ..... in vain
    Petya Nedelcheva vs Firda - wouldn't put it past Firda to take this but she hasn't been impressive
    CJS/LYD vs Koo/Tan - new focus for LYD to win the MD crown

    You beat me to it

    .
    I was just about to start this thread, but you beat me to it. :):):)

    Anyway, our Melbourne's Sri Lankan players are so encouraged by Niluka Karunaratne's win yesterday, on Day 3, that I have been them asked to teach them Badminton. :D:D:D

    I really hope NTM will win today. But Kayshap is a strong competitor

    here we go. Sudket/Saralee vs CPS/GLY

    if CPS/GLY win, it will be very interesting to see which two pairs will come out of this Group of death alive...

    CPS/GLY just getting thrashed by Sudket/Saralee, zero fighting spirit since the match against Chinese Taipei..

    CPS/GLY... seems very off. i guess no reason to fight anymore at this point of the group round robin.

    was hoping to see a better match.

    Saralee is incredibly sharp at the net.

    love the collar up Sudket. really shows his confidence level right now. reminds me of Xia Xuanze.

    Kashyap took G1 easily 21-9 vs NTM who simply cannot find his rhythm.

    Kashyap's recent good form continues here, I'd expect him to progress to the QF vs LCW/SS

    Now it's Taufik vs Pablo Abian ! Not expecting any surprises though, Taufik to take this one.
